“In 2016 an exciting mission was ended. The Rosetta spacecraft made its final maneuver: a controlled hard-landing on the comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko (67p). Before that Rosetta accompanied the Comet for more then two years. It researched valuable scientific data, brought a lander on to the comet’s surface, and took a vast number of pictures. In 2017, the European Space Agency released over 400,000 images from Rosetta’s comet mission. The short film is created from that material; the sequences are digitally enhanced real-footage from the probe.”

Film by Christian Stangl, Austria, 2019. Soundtrack by Wolfgang Stangl.
